The car of a learner driver was seized after police found the motorist driving unsupervised and without L plates.
Police who stopped the silver Ford Focus in Ipswich also said the insurance policy on the vehicle had been cancelled due to non-disclosure, where a customer fails to reveal a relevant fact when applying for or renewing insurance.
Officers from the Norfolk and Suffolk Roads and Armed Policing Team wrote on Twitter: “Vehicle stopped in #Ipswich tonight.
“Checks with @DriveInsured found the insurance policy to be cancelled due to non disclosure.
“Further checks then showed the driver was a provisional licence who was unsupervised with no L plates #seized #driveinsured.”
Learner drivers have to supervised at all times when they are on the road, whether that is by a qualified driving instructor or another motorist who meets the rules.
Any car being driven by a provisional licence holder must also display L plates at all times.
